Can she be a supermodel and a super-sister? She finds her answer in just one look.

Two sisters, both beautiful in different ways: Fifteen-year-old Ted has got "The Look." That's what the scout for the modeling agency tells her, and she can't believe her luck. But just as Ted's jet-setting off on her new career, Ava is diagnosed with cancer. Can Ted be a supermodel and a super-sister? Or will she have to choose between family and fame? With their worlds turned upside down, the girls have to look past appearances, look deep inside, to figure out what really matters.

Raves & reviews:

Praise for The Look

"A perfect narrative voice. The plot has you laughing one moment and crying the next. Bennett writes about what really matters to teens with zest, warmth, and sympathy." The London Times

"The book is well plotted and crisply and humorously written and also has two touching love strands. Ultimately what makes it so impressive is that a gripping story is also full of the messages young adults need in a superficial world." The London Telegraph
